The AARC staff has been hard at work during 2020 to bring you a new and improved way of receiving your member news. The Newsroom is your one-stop source for everything RT news related. The Newsroom can be found on the AARC website and includes news article, videos, podcasts, and more.  

This year has proven itself to be a year of hardships, where many of us have been pushed to grow and have been challenged more than we ever have before. With the end of such an historic year in many of our lifetimes, we look to 2021 with great hope and expectancy.  

The AARC is starting fresh during 2021 with providing our members a new experience. After 43 years of production, the AARC Times has retired at the end of 2020. As we all know, when one door closes another will open. That is why in January 2021 the AARC launched the Newsroom and AARC News.


The Newsroom brings you relevant, trending content each week, the AARC Newsroom will be your primary source for respiratory therapy news. The Newsroom will help RTs learn about the latest best practices to apply in their daily patient care. 

At the Newsroom you will find the latest AARC-produced articles as well as an archive of past articles where you can filter through topics for quick searching. In our Media section, you will find podcasts and videos. It’s your go-to resource for all AARC and industry news related items.

We’ll also have a new email newsletter for you. Our weekly AARC News Now and our monthly AARC Times email newsletters will now be AARC News. Sent to AARC members and subscribers each week, AARC News will share the latest articles from the Newsroom, as well as other member-focused content. 

We believe these new initiatives will provide our members with a more concise and productive way of receiving important AARC and industry news. 

We look forward to a fresh 2021 with new ways to meet our members needs. Be on the lookout for your weekly AARC News email and be sure to check out the Newsroom on our website. 

Email with questions or comments, we’d love to hear from you.
